A Comparison of Syncing Technologies — Joel Grasmeyer

When Apple first introduced iCloud at WWDC in 2011, most of these technologies didn't exist. However, all of the problems with iCloud have pushed developers to come up with alternatives. It's great to see all of the syncing technologies that we have to choose from today, and it will be interesting to see how these technologies evolve over the next few years. This post discusses the pros and cons of the most popular syncing technologies from the perspective of my particular requirements. If you want to read about a few other syncing technologies, Alex Curylo wrote a great blog post back in April about the problems with iCloud and some alternatives.

How to build a mobile enterprise app that works everywhere

Employees expect the tools they need to get their jobs done will be available from their laptops, smartphones, tablets, and eventually watches and face computers. But it's challenging to build a useful app, especially for non-technology companies that have never done it before. You have to think about designing the app, connecting it to your enterprise backend, and powering it up with services like cloud storage, identity, push notifications, and management -- and unless you're imposing IT fascism on your employees, you have to serve a mixture of iOS, Android, and other platforms.

Smartphone Market Share by Country - Q3 2013: Android Dominates Outside US, Windows Phone Grows in Europe. It's time for my quarterly recap of smartphone market share trends by region. As usual, global sales figures are from Gartner, while region-wise market share figures are from Kantar. In Q3, Android continued to lead the market, the iPhone saw a cyclical decline leading up to the iPhone 5C/5S launch and Windows Phone continued to grow at a smaller scale.

The chart above shows Gartner's global smartphone sales (sell-through) estimates. Nearly 82% of the 250 million smartphones sold in Q3 ran on the Android operating system, while iOS and Windows Phone represented 12% and less than 4% of the market, respectively. Android recently became the fastest platform to reach 1 billion users and has yet to register a single sequential, quarterly decline in smartphone sales/shipments. The Pros and Cons of Cross-Platform App Design. In 2011, having a mobile strategy shifted from "nice to have" to "must have" for businesses of all sizes. In 2012, that same shift is taking place when it comes to supporting multiple mobile platforms. Sure, some companies can focus on just one operating system and exclude all others, but most businesses and brands need to target myriad device types. It's no longer enough to just have an iPhone app — even small and medium sized businesses need to have a plan to support iPad, Android phones, the Amazon Kindle, larger Android tablets, Windows Phone and BlackBerry.

Developing for all of these platforms is a challenge, especially for the developer or business with limited resources. Fortunately, an entire sub-industry of development tools and languages exist to help solve this problem. Disponibile il Belkin WeMo, l’interruttore che si controlla dall’iPhone.
